I understand that playing GD music live on stage is incredibly fun. I do it, and I love it. We don't charge 150$ for a ticket, free usually. We're not top shelf musicians, but we groove it quite pleasingly.
I saw D&C at the Gorge in WA a couple of years ago, it was the best post Jerry thing I've seen. Still it was a teeny tiny little thing that I have zero desire to hear the recordings of . The vocals were actually the thing that separated it from all the P&F, Furthur, Other Ones, Ratdog, etc. They all do the same pointless round and round guitar jamming with no story, but at least D&C tried to make the vocals sound decent - you hear me Phil?
I can't listen to a webcast or any other recording, it just sounds flat and boring. I'm not sure how GD recordings would sound to me if I had never experienced what it really was like live, with a full PA blasting the music into one's DNA in a swirling atmosphere of psychedelics and a crowd going completely nuts because Jerry turned a phrase just slightly different than he had before. D&C is not psychedelic music at all. Actually none of the post Jerry stuff is, that part dried up and blew away with Jerry.
